If you live anywhere near Orlando, Florida or are going to Disney World in the next couple of months, don’t forget to go to Madame Tussauds and check out their Justice League: A Call For Heroes exhibit. There you will be able to take pictures with the full size wax figurines of Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), Superman (Henry Cavill), and Batman (Ben Afleck).
Here are some facts to remember when you go:
*All figures are made in London, founding location, and then sent to their assigned location.
*It takes about 15 artists and three to four months to complete each wax figure.
*With each celebrity, there are 250 measurements taken including hair, eyes, and skin color. Teeth are also molded during this time. After the measurements are made, the figure is sculpted in clay. Next is the molding process where the wax comes into play and is cast in it for about 170 hours. Then the hairs are put in, one strand at a time taking about 6 weeks to complete. Then oil paints are used to mimic the exact skin tone and it’s translucent and has a realistic texture. Once the skin is finished, the eyes and teeth are added. The eyes are made individually with acrylic resin to match exactly to the celebrity’s. Finally wardrobe is added to the figure. Generally the clothes are donated from the subject for their figure to wear.
On May 22, Mr. Cavill put a video and comment on his Instagram page about his figure. Look closely and you can see the figurine moves up and down saving you from the helicopter.

MADAME TUSSAUDS ORLANDO ANNOUNCES
NEW JUSTICE LEAGUE EXPERIENCE
Madame Tussauds Orlando’s Justice League: A Call for Heroes to Launch on May 25,
#FindTheMotherBoxes for a Chance to Win an Exclusive VIP Experience
ORLANDO, FLA. (April 12, 2018) — Justice will be served this summer at Madame Tussauds
Orlando. The world-famous attraction revealed plans to unite an all-star cast of DC Super
Heroes in an epic new experience. For the first time ever, fans of DC’s Justice League will come
face-to-face with their favorite heroes in an action-packed adventure unlike any other.
From fear comes courage! Guests will get a chance to star alongside Justice League’s Gal
Gadot as Wonder Woman, Henry Cavill as Superman and Ben Affleck as Batman, as they fight
to save the world from Lex Luthor’s evil corporation, LexCorp.
Developed in collaboration with Warner Bros. Consumer Products on behalf of DC
Entertainment, this first-of-its-kind attraction experience combines an all-star cast with
blockbuster thrills, authentic replica props and costumes that bring each character to life like
only Madame Tussauds can do.
“Fans have never come this close to the action,” said James Paulding, General Manager.
“Madame Tussauds Orlando, together with Warner Bros. Consumer Products, have created a
Justice League experience you have to see to believe – from the unbeatable roster of DC Super
Heroes to the sensational, hi-tech experiences.”
Justice League: A Call for Heroes will also debut later this summer at Madame Tussauds
Sydney, part of a greater transformation across Madame Tussauds attractions around the globe
to deliver live fame experiences that make guests the star of their favorite stories.
HEROES UNITE! The battle begins when the Justice League lands at Madame Tussauds
Orlando on May 25, 2018. Guests who answer the call will be transported to the streets of
Gotham City and Metropolis, uniting with the Justice League Super Heroes in a series of thrilling
missions to destroy LexCorp’s hold on the world.
Wonder Woman guests will help to destroy LexCorp’s formidable technology that has disabled
the city. By harnessing their inner super power, guests will be able to emit a powerful blast from
Wonder Woman’s gauntlets to weaken LexCorp’s control over the city.
Elsewhere in the city, Lex’s experiment wreaks havoc, sending a helicopter and its occupants
hurtling toward the ground. Guests will have to summon all their strength and join Superman to
help lift a helicopter back into the sky as onlookers cheer from the streets below.
As the battle continues, one Super Hero will remain elusive. Guests must summon Batman with
the Bat-Signal. Billowing smoke and wind reveal Batman as he’s called into battle on the
rooftop, ready to save the world.
